Embittered ex-cop Dave Burke (Ed Begley) enlists ruthless killer Earle Slater (Robert Ryan, The Dirty Dozen) and gambling musician Johnny Ingram (Harry Belafonte) to rob an upstate New York bank. Trouble unfolds however when, fuelled by racist hatred, Earle clashes with Johnny and the planned heist spirals into chaos, leading to a violent climactic confrontation With its exceptional jazz score, acerbic social commentary and atmospheric visual style, 'Odds Against Tomorrow' is a high point in the film noir canon, and one of the most important films of its era to address racism.

Wise Does it Again - Odds Against Tomorrow review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert

Robert Wise proves he is a master of the crime genre with this entry. Far from his best work (The Haunting) its still a thrilling and captivating experience.

lost sound after 20 mins or so into this DVD. Wish you would check quality before dispatch. Very unsatisfactory experience as this promised to be an excellent film with a great cast.
